Depending on the size of the event, and the availablity of cheap (<$800USD
round trip, right now it's $1600USD round trip), I might be able to make
the event.

Another issue for me is overlapping with LinuxWorld Expo New York City,
normally at the end of January...

I do some Linux consulting for a company with a field office in Perth
(company is based in Denver, CO, USA, with a major office here in Tucson,
Arizona, USA), and I might be able to get them to offset some of the
expense of me attending.

What kind of turn out are you expecting, I could put together a
presentation on the future of the desktop in educational environments,
